I took this shot last summer while sailing up the St. Clair River. Well to be honest not this exact image. A little digital darkroom work turned it into a reflection on the water shot. In real life you would have a hard time getting this shot because of the boat traffic not allowing the water to be still.

I was inspired by a post by Jimmy McIntyre. Here is a link to his image.

Below is the original straight out of the camera.

  1. Exceptional, Neil. I’m wondering if, with plenty of setup time and the right equipment, you’d be able to pull of a real reflection from through a very long daytime exposure.

    • Thanks! A long exposure would sertinaly smooth out the water but I’m not sure you would get the reflection.

  2. Hi Neil – interesting and striking image. Did you download his tutorial?

    • I have downloaded his tutorials but have not had a lot of time to go through them all. I did read his tutorial on creating images like this after I did it and I did it pretty much the same way. Jimmy’s work is fantastic and it is wonderful how much he shares of his techniques.
